I’m a passionate Platform Architect at Infragistics.

I’m a long-time WPF-Prism fanatic who enjoys writing developer tools and line of business applications.

My current front end passions are: XAML platforms (Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin, UWP, and WPF), Electron, ES2015 (ES6), Node.js, Aurelia, and AngularJS (Angular 1.5.x).

For the back end I use what is appropriate for the project: SQL Server and ASP.NET WebAPI, MongoDB, Express, Azure, Firebase, etc.

I am very pragmatic software engineer and strive to write simple, maintainable, and testable code. Simple code allows for solving complex problems in a maintainable way.
